Coming soon - this Thursday

Listen to this short Nov. 19 interview of Damien Gillis on SFU radio's Latin Waves program, hosted by Sylvia Richardson. The two discuss this week's Rafe Mair 80th birthday roast, Rafe's career in politics, media and the environmental movement - plus other key issues in BC today, including the battles over Fish Lake and oil pipelines and tankers. The proceeds from the Rafe Mair Roast - this Thursday evening, November 24, at the Wise Hall in Vancouver (1882 Adanac St.) - go to The Common Sense Canadian.

I hope to meet a few Northern Insights readers at Thursday's event.

  1. Alas, I am too far away to attend.

    My admiration of Rafe, knows no bounds. He is working very hard, to save BC from eco disaster.

    Harper and the Campbell/Clark BC Liberals have financially destroyed BC. Now, they are rabid to dismantle our beautiful province, and turn it into a polluted wasteland.

    The eco damage to our rivers, is an atrocity. Dirty diseased fish farms, killing our wild salmon, is utter stupidity. The Enbride pipeline and the dirty oil tankers from China. Well, everyone knows what Harper and the Campbell/Clark BC Liberals are doing to this province. None of it is good.

    You are doing a wonderful job Rafe. Enjoy your birthday party.


  2. I hope to be able to attend!

  3. Purchased our tickets several weeks ago.See you there.

  4. Hi Norman,I will be attending with a few other friends and readers and look forward to connecting with you Thursday!

  5. Wish I could be there. All the best Rafe.

    Since you are all (Norm, Laila, Rafe...) interested in media and politics, can someone tell me why CBC Radio started running free political spots recently, just as they do during elections.

    Today (Nov 23) I heard Conservative MP Ted Menzies (McLeod) spouting what was clearly political advertising at 11:30 am on CBC Radio.

    I've heard others too in the last month or so. Oddly (or not) they have all been federal Conservatives or provincial Liberals.

    Is CBC Radio trying to sneak political advertising in full time -- and only for their friends?

    Maybe people can check this out at Rafe's dinner.
